Whether PAM 979, PAM 1616, PAM 616 or PAM 799, these Panerai replica watches which VS factory has published in recent two months all belong to Submersible models, today, I want to introduce another Panerai Submersible replica watch, it is a special edition for Mike Horn, the genuine watch has a reference PAM 984.
Now back to this PAM 984 replica watch, it is an art work from VS factory. The watch is fully made of solid Titanium material, like other Luminor Submersible models, this special edition uses a 47mm case that is fully brushed, while the case is not too thick, it is only 15mm, not 17mm thick. The bezel is uni-directional rotating, it has engraved markers that are brushed in sand-finished bezel background, this looks amazing and gives a strong visual effect.
The dial is black, it is sandwiched, the upper plate has skeletonized hour markers, the plate at bottom is painted with Swiss Grade SuperLume. Please notice, this PAM 984 is different from other Submersible models, it is like Omega Planet Ocean, the dial has two different lume light color, when you check the watch in dark condition, the minute hand looks blue, other hands and all hour markers look green. The subdial does not look like the one of traditional Luminor Submersible models, it looks more technological. This is a Mike Horn special edition, I think Panerai just let it looks unique.
The case back is solid and has detailed engravings, there is a big shark logo and Mike Horn signature, it looks so special. Open the back, the movement inside is a super clone P.9010, VS factory claimed that they made this movement according to genuine Panerai P.9010, we believed it is a custom-made, but it absolutely can not be compared with genuine Panerai P.9010. Somebody said it does not have difference, but I must say that the power reserve of this clone P.9010 is not that long like genuine. So, I suppose this clone P.9010 is also based on a Chinese automatic movement, just with decorated plates and auto rotor, and also the balance wheel is changed to correct position. So, never think that a replica watch can have the same movement as original watch.
At last, about the water resistance you guys mostly concern, you can wear the replica watch while washing your hands and swimming, but do not go to a deep diving with it. By the way, not all replica watches can accompany you to swim, this is true. Sometimes your dealer can pick up a good replica with perfect water resistant performance, sometimes if the watch is not sealed well, the water can easily penetrate the case.
